Best Side of Bridge to Access Diamond Beach

Hi. Would someone please recommend us if it is better to access Diamond Beach at Jokursalon before or after crossing the bridge over the river that runs between the lagoon and the sea. I saw in the map that there are access on both sides of the bridge but would really appreciate which one do you suggest is better. Thanks!

Cross the bridge, park at Jökulsárlón, see the glacier lagoon and then walk along the shore under the bridge to Diamond Beach.

What is "better" depends on the conditions so it is not possible to really give an answer up front. The location and amount of stranded ice on the beach may vary a lot with the weather (direction of wind and waves and current). So you have to check for yourself if there are ice blocks on any of the two beaches and choose accordingly.
